-span and educate themselves to receive more votes. host: thank you for the call. one of your saying -- as we said earlier, ross perot sitting down for his first extended interview in many years. an interview conducted in plano, texas on thursday by richard wealth. they were agreeing to have our cameras in the room. it is a 70 minute conversation including david walker, who has been working with him on a number of initiatives to educate voters on issues in the election. the debt and deficit exceed $16 trillion. his article will appear tomorrow in usa today. we will show you an excerpt in just a moment. first some context to ross perot. when he ran as a third-party, he talked about the growing debt. \ [video clip] >> the world of a unlamented opportunity. what what they say to us if they knew by the year 2000 we will have left them with a national debt of $8 trillion? what would they say if they knew we make them the first generation of americans with a standard of living below the generation below them? we cannot do this to our children. in this election we have the opportunity to choose a candida
about tonight? >> i think that president barack obama did a wonderful job tonight. education was very important. i would love to be evidence in my children to a better school but at the moment that are not accessible. things were not looking good for mitt romney. it was quite natural for him to come out there and be very defensive, as he was denied to the next few weeks will be very crucial with the election being rider on the corner. i totally support barack obama, and we will go through it to the finish line. >> i think president barack obama really held his composure. there may have been times that he wanted to get frustrated or upset that he really held himself. i commend him for not getting upset and showing his frustration. it is only the first debate and we still have the vice- presidential debate. the republicans should not get so uppity with this whole thing because it was the first debate. governor mitt romney had to really come out there and show himself because it has not been looking at good for him the last few weeks. i don't think president barack obama did anything wro
to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number. thirty-eight. >>> crews in san jose are working to reopen a road that was closed down early this morning when a driver hit a pole knocking down several power lines. the accident happened around 1:30 a.m. near the interception of almendinger expressway. it appears the 18-year-old driver fell asleep at the wheel. she suffered nonlife threatening injuries. thousands of people lost power overnight but power has since been restored. >>> an arson investigation is under way after fire destroyed a south bay warehouse. ktvu's matt keller is live in san jose where the flames make some near by apartment residents pretty nervous, matt. >> reporter: ken, we watched some work crews put up this chain link fence around the warehouse. the only thing still standing is some of the fence of the front section as the flames de
overburdens in regulation and cuts spending one penny of every dollar. it focuses on education to make sure we are empowering our workforce for the jobs that are available. lastly, it develops a comprehensive energy plan so we can put people back to work while we are protecting our economy and being an energy independent. i spend time developing my plan. you have no plan. i think the people of connecticut want to know what we're going to do for them. >> mr. murphy, you have 30 seconds. >> linda mcmahon should stop spreading these stories. it's not ok to make up these stories when you're running for the senate. my work is based in the work of debt and public service and focusing tax cuts on the middle- class, not by focusing tax cuts on the affluent and rich. my focus is on rebuilding the education system, not divesting from funding the most important services to our states. they're big differences in are planted as we should be talking about. >> is the public being well served by the quality and nature of this campaign? we are here today in a formal debate and youtube are probably going to ans
'll be waiting by the door if anyone wants information and websites to go to educate yourselves better about this. one more comment which is that natural family planning can be used 99% effectiveness, significantly greater than a lot of the contraceptives that -- >> thank you. >> have you looked at the population in south america recently? [laughter] no, let me answer this. i think that -- >> [inaudible] >> i believe what you said is valid. i really -- when i teach constitutional law and i deal with the issue offed sodomy and the laws against it in the united states, i ask the students why was it banned? okay? it's not just -- sodomy applies to both homo sexual intercourse, and i asked why was it banned in the united states? it was a dearly held belief, in which i share, which is when people get together to express love through sexuality, it should be an expression of love and not just the need to have a physical release because when -- we're using another human being for our own pleasure. i find that immoral, all right? however, it is absolutely true that what you're talking about does -- is not
involved, because we're trying to get their money. >> it is a matter of public education, and that is where groups like dave's and other organizations that are trying to beat the drums to get americans to understand what is going on, is that what you feel is most important, educational? >> the first thing, in our country, if i had three wishes -- a strong, moral, ethical base. i had that growing up in the depression. a strong family unit in every home. now the divorce rate is over 50%, right? that is destabilizing. when i grew up in the depression of all times, we had the finest public schools in the world and the one thing a democracy must have is a well- educated population. our public schools are at the bottom of the industrialized world. that is the country. the great state of texas, where i went to schools and had an incredible education, is either 47 or 40 night in the 50 states. that is all our responsibility and we can correct that, but with these problems we face now, that is so fundamental about what we must do now, and we cannot pass that off to a house or senate or the state or
into this country at 16. $10 in my pocket when i arrived at new york city. of course, no education. the hardest thing i ever had to do. >> reporter: this act gives no freebies. to get to the ballot, prerequisites tacked on. paid tax, registered for selective service, plan to apply for full citizenship. supporters of the act say they want equal footing for all college bound in the community. the dreamers, the investment made in early education. >> we need them to build and assist in making a better america. in building of our future. >> some people that have been here for a really long time, and that's like, like a sister or brother, not being able to go to college. >> reporter: after the rally in langley park, time to strike up the band and march to the university of maryland campus. the senior director torres says the efforts lay preparation for larger immigration reform. >> we truly believe that the sooner the president is going to be re-elected, president obama, the first priority in 2013. >> reporter: a long march from langley park to college park with long uphill stretches but they all mad
live. he is a physical education teacher here at the school. thank you for being out here so early, we appreciate it donny. tell me about what is happening today. >> we are having our kick off assembly, we are going to challenge our kids to exercise and eat healthy for the next two weeks and the rest of their lives but the two week incentive program, 60 minutes a day. >> why is this so important? i know we are fighting childhood obesity. >> it's important for that reason, we are trying to fight heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, like you said, also we want to have kids stress free, exercise promotes that. also keep them more alert in schools to help them achieve better grades. >> reporter: torey smith is going to be here. >> they don't know that. they will find out 9:30 today. they will be e static imagine. >> you guys are going to keep records and logs. >> they track the progress for two weeks and raffle and prizes at the end from the ravens and our community as well. >> reporter: wonderful, wonderful. thanks so much for being here, how exciting for the kids, get them up and m
information and education anand they canake informed decisions anand be better at their jobs. >> one othe things he stressed that the conference i attenended was constantly adapting to the markets. the trick k for that, whether y you are a business owner are trying toto remain viable in the workace, is no getting to the party when it is halfway over. how do you look at where the market is and change and adapt without being almost too late for what is going to go next? >> as a small busess, this is one of t the great benefits. we are able to pick it quickly. when we see trends coming in the market, en we see what ourur stomer requirements are. we are paying attention to what other market leaders are doing. we are able to shiftnterernally and say we need to go in this directio it is just a matter of really staying on top of theame and knowining where things are going and say we will chahange at a momement's notice to meet the needs of our clients. >> what is a way that you evolves, from what you started out to what you're doing now based the marketplace shifts? >> one examples what we are d
. >> that is not a solution that is a real solution that will improve students' education. my concern is that a lot of democrats are going along with it and you'll pass policies that support this. >> cenk: she's exactly right. now why do those high-level democrats go along with it? it might have something to do with the money la bow ski. rahm emmanuel got $12 million from anti-union charter school advocates. and it's all about the money. whether they're republicans or democrats that are selling out to that money. now maggie gyllenhaal, who is a real progressive, tries to defend the movie when she's talking about it. >> it's okay to find fault inside of an constitution that you--inside of an institution that you ultimately believe in. i think there are problems in the teachers' union because ultimately the adults in this situation are not agreeing to the point this we're not able to make the changes we need to make in order to serve our kids, we're all failing into i'm sure she means well, but maggie, you got it all wrong. here is reason why they go after the teachers' union. there is only one group
educational programs and pell grants. they can cut those without consequences. more and more with the younger generation, they're digital. we need online registration. >> well said, by the way, in the state of california, many state legislators were saying that the reason they cut higher education for the uc system first is they figured there was the least amount of political consequence for them in doing so because young people don't vote. the case that we're making to people is not just vote because of the historical importance or because of the necessity as american citizens, but money equates to vote because they allocate money and resources on the basis of how groups turn out and that's critical. >> if they think they can cut you without consequence, they will. >> they will. >> part of the sin nichl here, too, is the youth vote was a critical vote in the 2008 elections. to this point of who is most impacted, both the people who have been getting much, much more engaged in our electoral process. these are first -- many times they're first-time voters. and what we're doing is essentially s
of education. and the troops to enforce the victory down in little rock. at that point, the democrats had to pretend to care about civil rights. the first civil rights legislation pushed by a democrat -- far more republicans voted for it. it was about 80% republicans. they had voted for every other civil-rights bill. they were liberal democrats. albert gore sr. all of these characters were ferocious opponents of joe mccarthy. robert byrd had 100% rating. do not believe the light they were conservative democrats. there was one of 18 liberal democratic segregationist who became a republican and that was strom thurmond. robert byrd had 100% rating. this line is pulled off by describing the entire south as if it was one state. republicans secretly appealed the democratic segregationist and suddenly we swept the south. republicans took the south when the dixiecrats died out. republicans had been winning the outer southern states since the 1920's. warren harding did pretty well. eisenhower twice. this was before 1964. reagan lost the dixiecrat states. reagan did best with college students, the

do anything to create a job, do anything to educate a child or do anything to bring down the deficit. but attempts at attacks and character assassination the way that mr. powell's been about tonight, frankly, make it a lot harder to solve problems, to compromise, to sit down and actually get something done. but i think that, mr. powell, you underestimate the decency of the voters of the seventh district, and i've had the privilege of representing this district for almost 12 years. and i can tell you we're honest and hard working people, and i have every confidence that the voters are going to reject your negative campaign. but i want to end this debate where we began. this election is about the future and about what kind of country we want to be. now, there's one path that i've advocated, lower taxes, less regulation that will produce more jobs. mr. powell's view is we need to raise taxes, we need government coming in and imposing regulation on businesses. but the fact is, we all know that the unprecedented prosperity of america did not come because the government just spent more mon
jobs outdate faster and spin off new jobs. and they each one requires more education. and i just think if we're going it i think america is a huge advantage in the world. because the i think the world is going to be divided going forward between high imagination and enabling countries and low imagination enabling country. rethe highest imagination enabling country in the world. if you have spark of an idea you can go to delta in taiwan they'll design it. they'll get you a cheap chinese manufacture. amazon will gift wrap it for christmas. free lancer get the logo. they are commodities except this. that's no country that does better. the problem with this though, the days will ford will move to your job with 25,000 person factory is over. it's 2500 people and a lot of robots and you know the old joke, the modern factory of the future is two employees, a man and the dog. the man is there to feed the dog and the dog there to keep the man away from the machines. generating 12 million nor jobs maybe it's possible only going to be possible if we once again get everyone starting something. so
more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number. thirty-eight. >> here's a live shot from downtown san francisco, you can kind of see some of the break of the cloud cover. as a result we do have some delays fromsfo to talk about. keep this in mind that theris is something you want to keep in mind when picking someone up from the airport. we are seeing more and onshore push with a cooler start to the morning as the system starts. there's a potential i am of we are tracking a 20 percent chance of rain as we head into monday and tuesday. the hardly strictly bluegrass festival, again it is a free event and thousands of people will be attending. but will be cool over the next couple of days and there will be a mix of klaus--clouds. as we start the next work week we will seek moisture in the bay area. we are still trying to get a h
in the state. lawmakers say the expansion would raise revenue for education. but how much of the money will actually go to schools. i spoke with the director of the maryland budget and tax policy institute. it is a nonpartisan organization and he says if voters approve the referendum, there should be close to $200 million that goes into the education trust fund. by the year 2016. >> all of the money will go to the education trust fund and will go to local schools. but the state may then use some of the money it saves because it doesn't have to use tax dollars for that school aid, and use that for health care and public safety, and parks and other good things that we depend on from the state. so it helps the state treasury. it will help the budgets. >> right. >> but it is wrong to say that it will increase education aid dollar for dollar. >> so what about job creation? that is another thing that they speak of. the ones who want you to vote in favor of this referendum. head to myfoxdc.com for our entire interview. >> massive automatic federal cuts are set to take effect in three months.
and education. by the way, it's rich. george you covered this race very carefully. governor romney during the primary, when his opponents complained, he stopped whining. he questioned the president on, making us a less christian nation. give me a break. you know, presidential campaigns are tough, but we're saying the truth about what governor romney wants to do. but, we're very confident with the case. we're going to make proactively about the president. >> the governor has shown that he can be tough in these debates as you pointed out. we're seeing reports that he's preparing some zingers. >> i think the president views this as part of the entire campaign. you know, our convention, the events that we do in battleground states. ads we're running. now, the debates. a chance to have a conversation with the american people. now, governor romney clearly, that i have been practicing these zingers and lines for months. but that's ultimately not what the american people are looking for, some may judge those to be some ranked well, but the american people are going to be listening not for a cleve
for energy policy, education, for jobs. that came across really strong. one comment about $90 billion given to bring jobs where we could have hired 2 million teachers really made a huge difference on that, too. president obama looks like he was uncomfortable. he did not look like he wanted to be there. mitt romney had a good night. whether that will show up at the polls is another story. i think mitt romney has a good shot now. if they get mitt romney in there, it is a win for a america, too. host: of next is bernard in south carolina. hello. caller: how are you doing? i do not understand what the caller was saying because mitt romney did not explain anything. he kept saying he knew how to do it, but he never said how he was going to do it. he brought up a lot about what obama had done, but what is he going to do? if he has a plan to do something, it seems like he ought to lay that plan out for the american people so he can say what he is going to do. to me he is not saying anything. thank you for taking my call this morning. people need to look at the facts and what he is saying before the
or may not have had a high school civics education course. those opportunities are not distributed well in the united states. we cannot assume that young person has had the opportunity to discuss those issues and get registered to vote in my high- school. host: ted joins us from indiana, on our independent color line. are you with us? virginia,n to west democrat line. caller: this is arthur. the corporations are driving the media and that is where we are getting our information from. i have two small kids, one is 1- year-old and the other is four years old. my income is $14,000 per year and don't use food stamps. i hope that this country starts seeing that we don't need to be republican or democrat. we need to be americans. most importantly, you have to look at the president about when he uses a veto and signs laws. he can only sign into law was put in front of him through the congress and the senate and that is where i feel all the problems are at with the donations to campaigns, for the corporations. if you look at wal-mart, they have their factories in china and they pay 13 cents per
straight ahead. dan hurd: when i was a child, california was a leader in education funding. erika derry: and the fact that california isn't making it a priority frustrates me. dan hurd: i'm ashamed of that, and i don't want this to continue for my daughter. brenda kealing: prop 38 is going to bring a lot of money to our schools. suzan solomon: the money stays at the school site. cade derry: what i would really like to see is that the teachers... that were laid off come back to the school. navaz hurd: a smaller class size. navaz hurd: as a mom i want that. as a teacher i want that. prop 38 is an opportunity of a generation. quick thinking sacramento area schoolteacher who helped save the life of a choking student. >> after trying to swallow it, i was choking on it. >> he was in class and started choking on his breakfast burrito, his teacher saw him and performed the heimlich maneuver, something he learned ten years ago. >> i'm just glad it's over. ist all in a day's work. i'm glad i could help a student. >> i'm extremely thankful. >> his mom is thankful as well that the teacher said her
the numbers say more about education and training than about race. he says less skilled less educated workers are doing poorly no matter what race they are are from. in washington, molly henneberg, fox news. >>> the problem we he have here is we have the democrats bragging about scoring field goals when we need touchdowns. >> they were rooting for a fumble and t is unbelievable that they are disappointd that we have a 44 month low in the unemployment rate. >> shannon: sunday football talk. not the kind that we are expecting here because now just 30 days left for president obama and governor romney to make their cases to voters before election day. it has been almost a week and both sides are still trying to clarify things that were said at last week's debate and tweak some strategy as they move on to the next one. i'm shannon bream. hour number two of america's news headquarters live from the nation's capital starts right now. >>> we begin with news on the unemployment rate. down to the lowest number since president obama took office. his campaign says that proves the president's policies are
. that is 100% incorrect. people need to educate themselves on how congress works. he had 60 votes until august when tent kennedy died. -- ted kennedy. then he had 59. a special election seat was triggered, the election with scott brown, that gave the republicans 41. then we lost senator byrd. that was another vote that we lost. so the president only had a senate for about eight months. in that eight months he was dealing with the worst recession since the great depression. so people need to educate themselves and stop going with these party lines of the democrats controlled congress two years and so on. there's only so much you can do. host: thanks for calling. this on twitter -- on facebook -- gary johnson will be on this program to take your calls in about an hour, 8:30 eastern time. the last call from texas reminds us of the interview with ross belprospero. -- with ross perot. richard spoke with him down in plano, texas. the headline, the u.s. is headed for disaster. the full interview with richard wolfe of "usa today" talking with perot, 9:00 p.m. eastern time. [video clip] >> do you think
